The 1996 version featured Lynne Thigpen as The Chief from the game show with the same name.
This game provides examples of:
- Acme Products: You are a sleuth at ACME Detective Agency in the 1996 version.
- Multiple Endings
- Issue an incorrect warrant, fail to even send one, or in the CD-Rom version, trying to arrest the wrong person, gives you the bad ending where the jury rules the crook innocent. In the CD-Rom version, a spinning newspaper appears with a dramatic fanfare, followed by an audience booing.
- Correctly filing a warrant will give you the good ending. The jury finds the crook guilty and gets sent to jail. In the CD-Rom version, the ACME Good Guide for the country you're in captures the crook, usually in a comedic fashion, followed by the newspaper reporting on the capture of the crook with the sounds of applause.
- Victory Dance: After you capture Carmen, a marching band parade plays Stars and Stripes Forever.
